We could have asked for no better day of Wednesday, October 10th, to hold the Regional 5B finals; and no better course, with temperatures in the mid-50s, a sunny sky and a light breeze.

The 15 schools would gather over 80 athletes to compete for a berth at the state cross country meet to be held in Huron on October 20th.

To say that Region 5 has become more competitive would be a drastic understatement.

Who's watching the kids?
